holes in caps
    #3523497 - 12/20/04 08:28 AM (12 years, 2 months ago)

i have a koh sumai cake on its second flush and on several of the pins the middle of the cap is missing ( a hole to the inside of the shroom) i wish i had a camera. i was wondering if too high rh could cause this.. what do you think?
thanks for your help :smile:

That is a strange phenomenon.  Sounds environmental, have you changed anything in your setup or methodology?  Are there any off smells or abnormal colours to indicate contamination?  Are they any insects, possibly fungus gnats, in you setup?  Check these and report back

Hmmm...Do you know what you ~rh% is?  With cakes you should be around 95%(visible water droplets on sides of terrairum).  If cannot account for any significant alteration of your environmental parameters, it may just be a rare case of degraded genetics, which leads to questions like how old were the spores before innoc, and how did you store them?

once i had a mushroom that grew completlely upside down, like the cap was attached to the cake and then the stem grew straight up.. and i had another where the whole cap was inside out, all the gills were on the outside of the cap!!! this type of life(fungi) is very primitive and old, its been around long before us cause its a simple crazy organism i wouldtn be worried
